  1. Q: what options are there for students who have already graduated? Is this something that is also available to young adult students who have already graduated?

  2. Are applications from homeschool students accepted for programs at the CTE ACE Centers? If so, what differences are there, if any, in the application process. Two of my three children are currently in middle school and we are planning ahead for the summer and beyond. We are interested in any information you can give us regarding your summer programs for middle and high school students as well as the programs offered during the school year for high school students. We live in the school zone for Hermitage High School. Thank you in advance for your time and assistance.

    1. Thank you for the question. You will need to talk to a school counselor at Hermitage, since it is your home school, and have them give you the details about enrolling your student so they can attend the ACE Center. Thanks

  3. Thank you for your reply. For clarification, do I need to speak with the middle school in our zone for middle school programs and Hermitage for high school programs or speak with Hermitage for both since the programs are held there? I currently have a sixth grader and an eighth grader who are interested in summer programs and later (when they’re old enough) the regular high school programs at the center. Thanks again for your time and assistance.
